Bato na Buaya

Buy an affordable Condominium in Buayang Bato MandaluyongBarangay Buayang Bato houses a very interesting legend surrounding its creation. It is said that there once lived an old Chinese man whose devotion to his Chinese religion was so renowned in the humble town he lived in, considering that he remained steadfast in his religion despite the fact that his peers have already converted to Christianity. His devotion to his faith was so strong that he would often ridicule the Christian faith.

One day, while he was traversing the Pasig River, a crocodile that was supposedly larger than any he has ever seen in his life began swimming towards his boat. According to one account, the crocodile was supposedly the Devil himself, hell-bent on dragging the old man down to Hell for his blasphemy. Of course, at the sight of the crocodile, the man began praying to the Chinese gods and deities he believed in, to no avail. He then realized that he was a long way from home, and that the gods he was praying to were back in Mainland China, so he began praying to Saint Nicholas, whose statue was prominently displayed in the Guadalupe Church.

Through the saint’s supposed divine intervention, the crocodile suddenly turned into stone, thus saving him from death and eternal damnation. This event then renewed his belief in the Christian faith and convinced him to convert to Christianity. It is said that the stone crocodile, or the buayang bato in Tagalog, can still be seen by the bank of the river near the Ferry Station whenever the low tide comes in.

As interesting as the legend might be, it is, and it always will be, a legend. However, whether the buayang bato story is real or not is not something that anyone can ever really answer. We can only look at the buayang bato by the Ferry Station and speculate as to what really happened there so long ago.
